Screen Skills Ireland is proud to announce that it is sponsoring Kilkenny Animated 2019, taking place 4-6 October 2019. This is the second year of the festival, which celebrates the best of Irish and international artists committed to the art of visual storytelling in all its forms.

Kilkenny Animated is a new festival of visual storytelling, incorporating cartoons, animation and illustration in a series of exhibitions, talks, performances, workshops and experiences that celebrate the creativity and craft of the visual image. The festival is hosted by twice-Academy Award nominated animation studio, Cartoon Saloon, and is the first festival of its kind in the world to bring together so many different aspects of visual storytelling for the enjoyment and appreciation of wider public audience.

This year’s festival features an exciting slate of expert speakers, including James Baxter (Director of Character Animation at Netflix),  Paul Young (co-founder of Cartoon Saloon), and Harry Bliss (cartoonist at The New Yorker).
